First and foremost, Blackbird is a Film Festival focused on supporting and celebrating independent filmmakers, animators and creators. The 2021 Blackbird Film Festival includes a total of 104 films, most short form (less than 15 minutes) along with 10 features (70+ minutes). Out of the 1555 total film submissions for the 2021 festival season, the Blackbird brings you 16 Thematic Screening Blocks spanning every genre out there! Throughout the festival weekend, nearly every film will screen twice - once at the Drive-In and again during the Daytime Tented Screenings. Daytime Tented Screenings will be followed by a moderated Q&A with the filmmakers, actors and crew.

All Screenings are FREE and Open to the Public!
